Add straight and curved rails to your train track layout -- turn more corners and go even further than before! Includes 8 curved rails and 8 straight rails Tracks do not conduct electricity and therefore are not compatible with LEGO 9V Trains.

 LEGO Other: Vintage MF Collection Vol.1
LEGO Other: Vintage MF Collection Vol.1
Everybody loves a classic! Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the LEGO minifigure with this unique collection of 5 famous figures from through the years. From the vintage 1978 astronaut to the mad scientist of 2002 and beyond, these friendly, smiling characters have always made building fun!

Awesome!
" This is the coolest set ever, it is perfect for any fan of LEGO. The coolest thing about this set is
the history of the LEGO minifig.
Mad scientist; 2002
This guy reminds me of Dr. Jekyll, and Mr. Hyde!
He has a double-sided head, one with fairly expected look (given the fact that he is a mad scientist), and the other has bloodshot eyes, and a need for a trim! He even has printed legs!
Criminal; 1996
Is this guy from Italy? That's what the black hair and the mustache will remind you of. This guy is a little different than your standard bad guy. How would they tell them apart in the jail? They're all number 23768!
Gas guy; 1992
This guy is just basic minifg with an Octan shirt on, but at least his colors are right!
Fireman; 1981
This fireman has an old style uniform, with a belt and gold buttons.
Spaceman; 1978
This guy is really cool. He's all red. including his airtanks.
The only con in the set, is that the astronuat hs the modern helmet, instead of the older long version.
Overall, for only $20 this set is a great addition for any collector.

Buy this first.
" I chose my title for one of two reasons. First off this is a great set for begginers, as it has wheels, windsheilds, and lots of cool pieces, like dumptruck bed, and a scoop, also cool colors. This set is going to help get all that creativity flowing for those early minds. The second I (14+11/12) found this set earlier this year while I was planning to buy set 7248 or 7246, (the digger or the minidigger) a minifig, and some pick-a-brick at the LEGO store. My dad found this set, and said he knew it was a little basic, but he figured I could do something with it. So I decided to try it out. The idea book had some really great ideas, so I tried combining some of them, and got really cool vehicles!
Pro's
Idea book has great ideas
Lots of different colors and pieces
Construction man
Con's
None at all
Overall, this set is absolutely wonderful, and deserves full marks. No older kid should look at this set and decide not to buy it because 3 and 4 year olds build with it too. Everybody should buy it for themselves as well as their child. The mind of a child is filled with amazing ideas, and creativity, and I believe this is the set that will help them nurture it.

Another builders dream.
" Unless you have wood floors (and a pillow for your knees) building LEGO structures on the floor can be tough, whereas if you have a baseplate underneath you, it will be a whole lot easier to build. I have so many of theses I usually lose some of them because I store them in so many different places!
Pro's
Stable surface to build on and keep the pieces in one place
Half could be a house and the rest could be the lawn. (Don't you wish your lawn was that green?)
Con's
If you have new or plush carpet, it can still be hard to get the pieces on the baseplate
Overall, I gave this product full marks, because you can't easily start a project without one of these. I wish they made them in different colors again.

A builders dream
" This baseplate is huge. You can use this to build anything, from a fire station, a train station, a hockey rink, a museum, or maybe a Mars mission Headquarters! Overall, this baseplate seems a little pricey, but is a good bargain, considering the sheer size of this thing (48 studs long, 48 studs wide)
I gave its play expierience full marks, for all the different things you can use it for.

Flying high!
" This set is so incredibly awesome, I barely know how to start describing it. It can be built into a jet, a hovercraft, or a helicopter. I didn't build the hovercraft yet, so I won't include it in this review. Lets go over the two I have built:
Jet:
Pro's
Awesome color scheme
The way the variable geometric wings work is great
Solidly built
Wing flaps and tail flaps move
Landing gear actually works
The lights are a good detail
The jet boosters are really cool
Lots of cool pieces
Con's
Nothing
Helicopter:
Pro's
Again, an awesome color scheme
Both the main and tail rotors spin
Cool dual cockpit design
Con's
There's no way to land it, as it doesn't have a base or landing gear on the bottom of the fuselage
Overall, this product is quite the bargain at only $20. This set is a great display piece.

I am train, watch me roll!
" This train is my second favorite in LEGO history.
Pro's
This set comes complete with track, and an
Remote controller with 7-speed FORWAD/REVERSE speed control, brakes and horn
The engine is incredibly detailed and has working lights
The rest of the train is amazing, with the beautifully designed coal car, the flat cargo car for transporting the roadster, the crane for loading cargo, and the extra boxcar for more cargo space
Forklift and flatbed-truck
5 minifigs
Accessories and cargo
Con's
Has lots of stickers (I like 'em, but some don't)
Takes 9 AA batteries, but oh well.
Has a seperate set of instructions for everything so you might lose one
Overall, this set has a great pricetag, and will work well with any city.

The best invention since the wheel.
" If you don't have one of these I can picture your LEGO collection. Teeth marks, scratches, broken parts, etc. If you buy one of these, building (and destoying) anything will be a breeze.
Pro's
Pulls apart all those pesky little pieces
Saves you from the dentist bill for fixing your broken teeth, caused by trying to bite the pieces apart.
Con's
None
If you buy two of these just put them on the top and bottom of the two stubborn pieces, squeeze, and you can seperate every tough piece.
Overall, I gave this product full marks, because the usefullness is definitely worth $1.69, and it will remove pieces faster allowing you to build faster. Seriously, you should buy these, you will love them as soon as you use them.

TWO THOUSAND AND EIGHT A SPACE ODDYSSEY.
" This little set is quite an entertaining one for only $5. It is perfect for a Mars adventure.
Pro's
Astronaut helmet has gold visor
Alien glows in the dark
The craft has a unique design
Really cool pieces for the gun
Con's
Shoud have more energy crystals
Astronaut looks like he should have a blaster or something but it probably wouldn't fit in the cockpit
Overall, this set is really cool, and you will be glad to have it. It's a great bargain too!

Engage in adventure.

Indy (With whip, fedora, and shoulder bag)
Guard
Three guns (Two in the set, one extra)
Two motorcycles (one with sidecar)

Overall, this set is an amzing bargain, as you get everything you need to make an amazing adventure happen out of a few pieces.
